I wish i could but I have school and its a 4 hour drive one way. So waking up at 3 am. Leaving at 4 am. Boarding at 9am. Leaving at lets say 4 pm. Getting home at 9 or 10 pm because food and traffic. Thats not easy for a 17 year old to do unless i went by myself.

You're 100% right, it ain't easy. Not in the least.
My drive, is 3.5 hours. Bout the same really.
I'd rather go the night before, that's what I usually end up doing.
When you KNOW it's puking up there & you're gonna be riding the most incredible lines of your life. Hahaha
It's pretty damn hard to get any sleep anyway.
There's also a earlier "fresh trax" ticket you can buy. There's only a certain amount though, it's first come, first serve.
One of those, will get you on the peak, with an all you can eat buffet breakfast @ 6am.
Then after your done eating, you get the WHOLE mtn for 2.5 hours all to yourself.
So you get 10hrs of non stop powder slaying goodness.
It's almost too much for your body to handle, almost hahaha
I had 2 gopro's with me this day.
In all those 10hrs, this was all the footy I managed to get 6 seconds.
It had snowed for 4 days, all of the alpine had been closed to everyone, nobody was allowed up there, it was like 3 feet deep of untouched heaven.
In the close to 30 years that I've been snowboarding, no single day, including 4 days at BaldFace lodge riding with Jamie Lynn & other pro's even came close to how fucking incredible this day was.
It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it.
It's tough for me to get up that early & make it there that early.
So I usually go the night before, park at McDonald's, then wait a few hours until it's open.
When it's puking that much & you know you're gonna have the best day of your life, hahaha, it's kinda hard to get any sleep, no matter where you're trying to sleep.
I'm sure it seems like an impossible task, but it's not that hard once you leave your house.
But HOLY FUCK hahaha is it ever worth it.
